FDA Issues Recall Notice of Pharmaceuticals Created by Florida Compounding Pharmacy

http://www.miamiherald.com/2013/05/08/3387295/fda-inspection-triggers-recall.html

The Federal Drug Administration has issued a recall of all sterile drugs created by The Compounding Shop of St. Petersburg, Florida. This pharmaceutical manufacturer is a compounding pharmacy much like the New England compounding pharmacy that was responsible for many death and injuries from a meningitis outbreak this past summer. The FDA has announced this recall because of safety risks at the pharmacy. The FDA was specifically worried about the sterility of the compounds drugs, and the agency has asked doctors and pharmacies to quarantine any drugs from this compounding pharmacy.

It appears the FDA has begun cracking down on these compounding pharmacies in the wake of the deadly meningitis outbreak this past summer. This compounding pharmacy is one in a line of compounding pharmacies to be cited by the FDA for safety concerns. Compounding pharmacies had been operating in a gray area prior to the deadly meningitis outbreak, and this allowed these pharmaceutical manufacturers to fly under the FDAs radar. However, after the lethal outbreak this past summer the FDA has begun taking a closer look at these drug manufacturers. Hopefully these inspections will decrease the amount of lethal outbreaks from tainted drugs.
